Description

Cooking Chinese food at home has never been easier - all you need is this book, a wok and a quick trip to the supermarket. Kylie Kwong's philosophy is to use the freshest produce and cook it simply to make the most of the clean flavours. All the necessary ingredients are available at your supermarket and Kylie's recipes are friendly and straightforward. In no time, you'll be cooking everyday favourites like soy sauce chicken and sung choi bau on weeknights and fresh-tasting button mushroom salad and prawn wonton soup for weekend occasions. Enhanced by Earl Carter's inspiring photographs of all the finished dishes, and with step-by-step pictures to guide you through their preparation, Simple Chinese Cooking will never be far from your kitchen.show more
